ICAS Air Boss Academy: Limited Space Still Available

October 1st, 2010
ICAS has scheduled the 2010 ICAS Air Boss Academy for October 28, 29 and 30 in conjunction with the Fort Worth Alliance Air Show, Texas. Like the traditional ICAS Air Show Academy, the Air Boss Academy uses an actual air show to provide a small number of ICAS members with a unique opportunity to get a hands-on, practical air boss education. Moderated by ICAS member and veteran air boss Wayne Boggs, the program will begin on the evening of Thursday, October 28 with an informal welcome reception. On Friday morning, participants will attend the pre-show performer safety briefing. After some classroom discussions and instruction, the entire class will move out to the flight line where they will monitor the air show radio frequency and discuss the details related to air bossing this particular air show. As one of the most experienced air bosses in our business, Boggs will explain what the Fort Worth Alliance Air Show air boss does and why he does it that way. At the end of the first day, the group will return to the classroom to de-brief and discuss the day’s activities. On Saturday, the group will sit in on the performer safety de-brief and once again listen in as the air boss orchestrates one of North America’s finest air shows. The official program concludes on Saturday night. Class size for this ICAS Air Boss Academy will be strictly limited to 15 participants. The fee to participate in this unique educational program is $300 per individual. And because ICAS expects an overwhelming response to this program and because we will cut off registration once the 15 person limit is reached, there will be no refunds on registration.
